Abstract

An executive memo just released by Attorney General Jeff Sessions promises to reduce the crushing caseload in immigration courts nationwide. Unfortunately, the memo contains dubious assertions about the current state of our immigration court system and appears poised to lead to improper hiring, dangerous quotas, a threat to judicial independence and the further erosion of the rights of noncitizens, including lawful permanent residents and asylum seekers.
